When Is a Game Not a Game?

I didn't like Dear Esther, it was good looking and all, but I didn't connect with the story it was trying to tell, didn't really understand all the symbolic meanings and by the last 15 mins I just wanted it to end.

Sounds good, hopefully they can keep up adding lairs and group missions on a regular basis.

They still need CoX style grouping though. A low level hollows or Perez style map with massive +5 mobs should do the trick. And scaling mission instances would be a boon too, dont know why they left that out tbh.

CoH is doing well for a five year old mmo that hardly got any advertisment. I dont think they'd mind CoH's fate.

Dragon Age Pen & Paper RPG unveiled

@MikeN

I dont think the WoW RPG did all that great. Surprisingly, the people who wanted to play WoW just played WoW and the RPGers just played their normal systems. I also heard that it wasn't very well balanced, so that may have been why it wasn't accepted.

I bet if it was a rpg for darkfall they were making, we wouldn't have been able to move for all the nerdrage. :)

Anyway, I hope you've been put in your place Rob. And as a final insult I will be turning my back on you, gooday sir.

I do agree with your other point Grayvern, they should just use an existing system. The only way this rpg will take of is if the game does well and those players fancy roleplaying in that setting.

I just cant see GMs and players wanting to run it when there are so many good rpgs out already or coming out around the same time. Just a setting book for OGL would have sufficed.

I don't know about everyone else, but my brain can only store so many systems, and i'm not gonna try learn another one unless all my players want to play it (not likely) or it offers something mega original and that sounds like fun.

I wouldn't mind so much, but these computer game nerds STOLE our bloody name. A role playing game to most people now is final fantasy and WoW, not Call of Cthulhu,GURPS, etc.

newsflash people, your playing an avatar, usually with very little choice or direction of the story. Thats not an RPG.

"What that probably boils down to is putting on a robe and wizard hat, inviting friends into the attic, pushing little figures around a board and having mother make lemonade."

And I suppose all the people playing the computer game version are bath-shy girl-friendless social outcasts that never see sunlight?

Way to patronise people.

Can I has ur monies then? If you're so rich and dont mind throwing money away on vitual tat?

My prediction: EA are gonna be too greedy and its going to be too restrictive, driving away the best of the user contributers, turning a sure-fire cash cow into a one or two egg golden goose.

I can understand UbiMont's marketing tactic, afterall PoPSoT didnt sell aswel as it should have back in the day.

Having Jade as the "poster child" has already seemed to do its job, and im sure Jade et al are well aware of the connotations of this. And after all it is better that we discuss the merits of Jade, than us all discussing potential screen tearing and AI.

As the saying goes, boys will be boys and businesses will be businesses

"Innovation is one of those things that I value very highly, and I just find that as much as I applaud the beautiful, fantastic production guys of Halo 3, it's really Doom 1 in different clothing."

So we just make a original game then fuck off and think of something different, rather than refining gaming ideas until they are polished and a shining homage of what came before.

Doom is Spasim in different clothing!

Ive heard of people doing raids in monster play (as their monsters), which sounds pretty cool. I did notice there seemed to be at least a few quests in the pvp areas
